Event Details

2010, 66 min. Directors Fabrizio Corallo and Francesca Molteni

Una bella vacanza (A good holiday), is  a documentary profile of famous director Dino Risi made for his 90th birthday. It features interviews with his collaborators, friends, and family, as well as Risi himself, who talks candidly about his personal successes and the obstacles he faced.   Risi, who described his working life as a beautiful holiday, was able to maintain an active career into his 90s, attracted celebrated actors and collaborators to his very special brand of intelligent, sparkling humour.  He was one of the most successful directors of the so-called “comedy Italian style,” a bittersweet mix of irony, melancholy and joy.  He possessed, beneath his apparently cynical and even cruel gaze, the traits of a true humanist. Throughout his prolific career, he made films that exhibited a profound morality while giving life to complex characters played by some of the most beloved and accomplished Italian stars of the time.
